Summer tours have allowed the hottest country men to travel the nation — in less clothing than normal — giving every fan a chance to see one or two of the sexiest male stars of 2012. A few look their best on stage, while others wear a suit and tie like a policeman wears his uniform. It just fits.
Luke Bryan is out. The ‘Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye’ singer toppled all five competitors put in front of him, thanks to votes from fans online and via Taste of Country Nights radio. One by one, Bryan knocked down his fellow country artists, walking straight into Showdown Hall of Fame without even breaking a sweat. That means that this Friday battle will start with two fresh faces in Eli Young Band and Jon Pardi, both armed with new singles about achy minutes with, or without, that special someone.
Blake Shelton‘s new hit ‘Over’ won the inaugural Showdown on Taste of Country Nights last night, besting ‘The Wind’ by Zac Brown Band by a 2-to-1 margin. This means the song will face another country hit in the quest to go five-for-five and be retired to the Showdown Hall of Fame. Tonight, the emotional ballad from the ‘Red River Blue’ album will face-off against ‘Shinin’ on Me,’ the lead single from Jerrod Niemann‘s upcoming album.
After months and months of anticipation, new Jason Aldean music is finally on its way. While on the red carpet at the 2012 CMT Music Awards, Aldean told Taste of Country and a handful of other reporters that his first new single from the next record will be at radio as soon as a month from now.
The 2012 CMT Music Awards winners were the stars of the night at the annual ceremony that celebrated the year’s best country music videos. The show, co-hosted by country’s own Toby Keith and actress Kristen Bell, highlighted the best clips of the year while providing an evening full of entertainment with countless live performances from the hottest country acts.
The 2012 ACM Awards winners were elated to collect their prizes on the eve of country music’s biggest party. The annual awards show, hosted for a second time by Reba McEntire and Blake Shelton, airs live from Sin City — Las Vegas, Nevada — and pays tribute to the most famous stars in the genre. Natural, selecting the best of the best and naming winners is a daunting task.
Kellie Pickler releases her third studio album today (Jan. 24) and is sharing the stories behind each of the 11 tracks exclusively with Taste of Country. ’100 Proof’ plays almost like an autobiography of Pickler. There’s a song dedicated to her new husband and her father, as well as one inspired by her struggles to accept what’s left of her relationship with her mother.
The 2011 CMA Awards winners had plenty to celebrate as they accepted their honors on the year’s biggest night in country music. The annual awards show, hosted by Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood — airing live from Nashville — pays tribute to the genre’s biggest stars. Choosing winners from this list of talent is no easy feat.
Miranda Lambert is releasing her new album ‘Four the Record’ on Tuesday, Nov. 1, and Taste of Country has the exclusive premiere of her personal stories behind each song on the record. The album features 14 brand-new tracks, including her recent single, ‘Baggage Claim.’ The deluxe version of it — which can be pre-ordered here — also features extended versions of these cut-by-cuts on a DVD that comes with the package.
